Judy A. Holloway

December 3, 1950 — April 11, 2024

McPherson, KS

Judy Ann Holloway, 73, of McPherson, KS, peacefully passed away surrounded by family on Thursday, April 11, 2024, at McPherson Hospital.

 

She was born on December 3, 1950, in  Herington, Kansas, the daughter of Harvey and Alta (Aldridge) Fleming.  She graduated from McPherson High School in 1969 and continued her education at Hutchinson Junior College, Wichita State University, and McPherson College.  On August 9, 1969, Judy was united in marriage to Gary C. Holloway at First Christian Church in McPherson.  This union was blessed with two sons, Barry and Chris.

 

Judy was one of the first employees of McPherson Pizza Hut in the 1970s.  She taught for 15 years in USD #418 as a classroom teacher and as a gifted education teacher.  After she retired in 2005, she was a substitute teacher and an adjunct professor at Tabor College for two years.

 

She loved to play tennis and tried to please her husband by playing golf with him, even though she hated the game.  Judy adored her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.  She wrote two children’s education books and had them published.  She was a Den Mother for the Cub Scouts and helped with many school activities. Judy loved watching her sons and grandchildren play their sports.  She enjoyed trips to Hawaii and was the all-time best at shop-‘til-you-drop.  She worked with the Blessings Boutique gang at the church for their annual fundraiser.  In her spare time, she loved reading and playing cards (especially Krypto with her good friend Donna Viola), board games, and playing the slot machines at the casino.

 

Survivors include: her loving husband of 54 years, Gary Holloway; a son, Chris (Julie) Holloway of McPherson, KS; a sister, Karla (R.J.) Reutiman of Centennial, CO; two grandchildren, Baylee (Hunter) Dixon of South Hutchinson, KS and Carter Holloway of Manhattan, KS; two great-grandchildren, Briggs Dixon and Wrenley Dixon; and many extended family members and friends.

 

She was preceded in death by her parents, Harvey and Alta Fleming; a son, Barry Holloway; sister, Jan Pecoraro; two nieces, Kerstin Hall and Stacey Bruza; and a nephew, Jeff Myers.

 

A private graveside service will be held at a later date at McPherson Cemetery with Pastor Lynn Scott officiating.  

 

Memorial donations can be made to the First Christian Church Blessings Boutique in care of Stockham Family Funeral Home, 205 North Chestnut, McPherson, KS 67460.
